From 24 June 2023, some transactions between dealers and firearms licence holders must be recorded using the Dealer Transactions form on our website.
This is an interim step until dealers and their dealer stock are brought into the Firearms Registry.
Providing information through the Dealer Transactions form means we can make sure firearms licence holders are aware of the requirement to register their arms items.
For transactions entered into this online form, you no longer need to use the Firearms Licence Checker. The Dealer Transactions form will validate the customer’s licence details.
If you’re a gunsmith
You are not required to record items brought in for repair or modification in the Dealer Transactions form. You’ll continue to record these transactions in your usual dealer records book.
You are still required to use the Firearms Licence Checker tool for transactions entered into your dealer records book.
